Cornelius in Acts chapter 10 is generally cited as the first Gentile convert to Christianity. What then is the status of the Ethiopian eunuch baptised by Philip in chapter 8? Was he a Jew in the service of Candice? If so why did he not understand Isaiah? Was he a proselyte at the door but unwelcome because of his emasculation? Or was he a Gentile? If so, why not recognised as such?
